Prominent Canadian folk-rockers Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland have taken the music scene by storm, uniting their musical talents to form the new band Whitehorse. Individually, they are two of Canada's most acclaimed roots-oriented singer-songwriters and have garnered numerous awards and nominations from various agencies including the Juno Awards, the Canadian Folk Music Awards and the Polaris Prize.

Doucet and McClelland, who are married, had worked together extensively prior to the creation of Whitehorse but both artists bring completely different qualities to their music. McClelland's more bluesy style mixing beautifully with Doucet's edgier rock sound. They create music that cascades forth, rushing like currents fluid and electric. More than the sum of considerable talents, Whitehorse showcases the rarity of a true give-and-take partnership, uniting falcon and songbird to dramatic effect. Their fusion of the personal and professional brings to mind the road-tested romance of Johnny and June.

Whitehorse released their self-titled debut album in August of 2011 and have toured extensively, promoting it, since then. The album was met with critical acclaim, but their true magic is found in their stage performances. Their onstage chemistry is undeniable, and their powerful musicianship is softened by a tender playfulness.
